When I was 17 years old, gasoline in New Jersey was 95 cents a gallon.
I could fill up my 1988 Chevy Beretta for about $15. Now that 15-gallon tank would cost over $45 to fill up for $3.39 per gallon, which currently is the average price of gasoline in Maryland.
According to AAA, gas prices continued their upward tick for the second straight week, following 11 consecutive weeks of declines, inching up 6 cents nationally since the beginning of July.
The $3.39 national average price for regular grade gasoline was up 3 cents for the week, yet down 15 cents from month-ago prices and down 26 cents from a year ago. However, prices remain 72 cents lower than the record high of $4.11 set four years ago this week.
So we want to know how much gas was per gallon when you bought your first car or first got your driver's license.
